The crypto related index for DeFi is done in partnership with London-based brokerage firm EXANTE, and will offer "real-time" information for the promising decentralized finance blockchain projects such as Augur, Gnosis, Numerai, MakerDao, and 0x.
The new index is available on the Nasdaq Global Index Data ServiceSM (GIDS), its consolidated data feed, and is refreshed every 60 seconds. In addition to Nasdaq, users can also view the DeFix index on Tradingview and Google, as well as Yahoo Finance in the future, per the announcement. Earlier this year, Nasdaq also partnered with New Zealand-based blockchain data and research firm Brave New Coin to provide indices for bitcoin (BTC), ether (ETH) and XRP cryptocurrencies. The operator also offers two benchmark indices covering the top 200 cryptocurrencies by market capitalization – one with bitcoin and the other without – in an association with CoinMarketCap.
